Music lessons 2017  “I am incredibly blessed to work here, where the students are eager to learn and incredibly smart! To be able to see music touch the lives of these students is a joy. They are incredibly talented, putting together pieces of music that they love, adding movement to it, and performing at a high level in front of a large audience! They have already performed twice for the public at celebrations, and will continue to do so this spring!” -Sarah

To give the students some extra attention, the teachers of AHLC could use some help!

If you live in Cairo and you want to volunteer part time, we would love to hear from you!  We can use volunteers for a couple of hours a few days a week.  We are also looking for full time volunteers who are available for more extended amounts of time.

Our students are taught in English so the language barrier isn’t a problem.

We hope that as you serve here you also gain from the experience.

Categories of Volunteers Needed:

1) Community Based Volunteers:
Volunteers who desire to come consistently (i.e., One day a week for two hours)

2) Short Term, overseas volunteers:
Volunteers who typically come from abroad, for a one to six month time period. They tend to have more time to serve than once weekly and might be able to commit to volunteering daily in one class, or visiting more classes. They could also be involved in maintenance work around the school.

3) Teams:
Volunteers who come in groups for a short term experience in Cairo and wish to serve the school/students in some way.

4) Community Children’s programs:
Usually groups such as Boy Scouts, Pioneer Girls and Youth Groups who typically want to come and spend an hour with a class and do something nice for the children, such as read books to them, leave them gifts or commit to doing a project in the school.

Volunteer Opportunities

1) English Language Assistants:
English tutors are needed who can assist our first through fourth grade students in their literacy skills. This involves spending one or two mornings a week sitting with AHLC primary age students and reading with them.

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 7:30-9:45am we need volunteers to read with our students. 

2) Other subject Assistance                                                                                            We also are in need of people to run elective and enrichment programs such as I.T., Art and Music. If you have a passion for any of these, we would love to have you here!

3) Maintenance/Repairs/Up-keep:
If you have any training in electrical, plumbing, carpentry, computer maintenance, painting and scraping, interior design or the like, we can utilize your skills and training in our school!

4) Donor Relations or Fundraising Events:
We would like to find someone who has skills in grant writing in English, donor reporting, and organizing fundraisers.

5) Staff Development and Encouragement:
Many of our teachers have not had opportunities to be trained in the areas that they require. They welcome and greatly appreciate ANY help from those skilled in teaching and coaching.

6) Holistic Care:
Our students face many huge challenges in their lives due to the devastation of war, broken families, and poverty. We have counselors and psycho social workers among our staff. We would appreciate anyone with a burden for intercessory prayer, to come and walk around our campus and through our hallways and classrooms and pray for us as a community and a ministry. If you have counseling skills or medical skills and would like to assist our staff and students then we would like to hear from you.
